Emergency Medical Plan:
In the case of a medical emergency the phrase "No Duff, No Duff, No Duff" will be called out on the race radio, in which all race directors, the ROVERS search and rescue, as well as key volunteers will be instructed to halt all race operations. The person who initiates the "No Duff" call will contact 911 for an appropriate emergency response.


1. To ensure an accurate finishing time, race numbers must be visible on the front of the athlete.

2. You will need footwear for the run from swim to transition.
